Updated to the latest version and dropped initscript support.

Adopted and updated!
If anyone was using my old foldingathome-v7 package, please update to this one and copy your config.xml from the /opt/fah-v7/ folder to the /opt/fah/ folder.

@Snowman
I just sent that TU an email and asked him if would orphan it for me.
We will see....

It would make more sense to update the foldingathome PKGBUILD instead of creating this one. The foldingathome PKGBUILD is maintained by a TU but it has been out-of date for 6 months. You might want to report/ask for help on the aur ML.

Updated the package to include a systemd script and to fix the download error.
Thanks to luolimao for all the help!

Also, the systemd script appears to work fine; it should be all right to add to the package.

After googling a bit, and learning about the DLAGENTS option, the error can be fixed by adding the line

DLAGENTS=("https::/usr/bin/curl -k -o %o %u")

to the PKGBUILD. Although for some reason the wiki fails to mention this under "PKGBUILD" or "Creating packages" but instead lists it under "Nonfree Applications Package Guidelines":

Downloading the file first still isn't working, sorry.

@luolimao
The download error is caused by a certificate error on Stanford's servers. If you manually download the file, it should build with no problems.

I put together a systemd script and uploaded it to here --> http://pastebin.com/bW4CakV4
Copy it to /etc/systemd/system/foldingathome-v7.service and tell me if it works before I add it to the package.
